Small is the New Big!

While 2,500 in-stock special occasion dresses might not sound small, we’re small in comparison to self-serve department stores, on-line big box stores with banks of telephone operators who’ve never actually seen the merchandise, or rogue Chinese factories who put up websites to give the illusion that they are retailers with an actual store.

Department stores buy based off of excel spreadsheets. We buy our dresses based on 23 years of hands-on experience. We carefully hand pick all of the best dresses from all of the best designers in all of the best colors in a variety of sizes and price ranges.

In that respect, we’re unapologetically small. We love working with our customers, hearing about their weddings, families and other upcoming special events. We love seeing them time and time again!

We’re family owned and operated and like to treat everyone as if they’re friends or family. Feel free to drop by, wander through the dresses and have fun exploring on your own. If on the other hand, you are overwhelmed and need help, our staff is here to help. Every one of them has years of experience and are standing by ready to guide you through the process. Our goal is to make your search for the perfect dress as enjoyable and memorable as possible - because It’s always a privilege to be a part of someone’s very special occasion! Read less

I am the Mother of the Bride & went to T. Carolyn recently with my best friend to look for a dress. We were helped by Michelle Barahona, & she was fantastic. She pulled dresses for me & assisted me in & out of each one. Michelle is friendly, knowledgeable, & great to work with. I found a gorgeous dress & couldn't be happier!

I had gone to the big chain stores thinking I would find the large variety that they appeared to have on the internet - only to be disappointed in their ability to get in the dresses that I wanted to try on for my MOB dress for my daughters wedding in May. I found T. Carolyn's very large selection on the internet and was pleasantly surprised by their large inventory in the store as well as many friendly and competent sales personnel. They have you fill out a quick form - with price , style, sizing etc - and once you pick out 4 dresses to try on - they will keep bringing you dresses in the dressing rooms. The overall atmosphere is very friendly and makes the finding of the right dress not so overwhelming! There was also all shapes and sizes of women and dresses there - so I would recommend MOB and MOG and anyone looking for a beautiful dress to make the most of your shopping time and start with T. Carolyn. My dress is so beautiful and I cant wait to wear it! The staff and the owner Terrie were wonderful - even showing me earring color choices to compliment my dress. I will send pics after the wedding! My daughter will be bringing her future mother-in-law here to shop for her dress and the only regret I have is that I didn't look for a dress for the Rehearsal dinner while I was here! Definitely have to go back for that! They also discussed alterations etc and where I could have the dress shortened.

I needed a Mother-of-the-Bride dress and T. Carolyn’s was my first stop. I was already concerned that many MOB dresses I had seen were either sleeveless or strapless and neither was for me. I was dreading the upcoming search for the perfect dress.
With Terrie’s expertise, she brought out the perfect dress and was able to suggest certain modifications that will take care of all my areas of concern. I was thrilled. She even suggested a seamstress to whom she has sent many customers for years. My size dress was in stock and arrived in just a few days.
The color and style of the dress are extremely complimentary, and I feel beautiful in my dress. T. Carolyn’s gave me the personal attention that I needed to find just the right dress for such an important occasion!

I drove to Houston to go to this store...I was not looking forward to the daunting task (similar to buying a bathing suit) to wear to two major events here in Dallas. I was greeted by Feridee. She was patient because it was clear I was not in the mood for this. She pulled a dozen dresses, I tried on 6. The first dress I put was nicer and fit better than the awful dress I bought on line for my step daughter-in-law's wedding a couple of month's ago. The second dress was like putting on a miracle...it fit perfect, even my behind looked attractive, a miracle at this age! I did not even look at the price tag, I just knew I felt elegant for the first time in many years. The tailor they use is wonderful...I had to have the front hem taken up a bit. Save yourself some heartache and go here first...I will always go here first from now on.

You are greeted upon coming into the store. A profile card is given to you for completion, then a consultant greets you and asks a few question while you browse and she pulls a few dresses for you to try on. This experience was so lovely for me. My husband and son waited in the comfortable chairs and my daughter-in-law helped me and chatted with the consultant Michelle. I would recommend Michelle and T. Carolyn if you are looking for the perfect dress for that special day. This was the most pleasing pleasant experience a Mother of the Groom could ask for. Try T. Carolyn's you won't be disappointed. Thank you for everything. Grace

My daughter's Scottish wedding is 6 wks away. I Mother of the Bride have been dragging my feet, going out and selecting my dress.
I am walking my daughter down the isle as her daddy passed away.
Oh what an Honor, and I have to make my girl proud.
I walked in the beautiful shop, was promptly welcomed by the sweetest consultant named Inez.
She was professional and attentive to my wedding needs.
After looking around on my own she brought me a dress.
I had no clue I would fit the dress. I put on the dress and came out thinking this isn't going to zip.
It did and my husband loved it.
Shoes next to try on, Inez brought the perfect pair of silver sandals.
Said to try them on and walk around. Wow are they comfortable and beautiful too.
So 1st place, 1st dress, 1st pair shoes. Perfect THANK YOU Inez.
You are a sweetheart.
Will post you a picture after the wedding. Oh did I say dress fits perfect. I Love T Carolyn. Thank you for making this easy and fun.

There is absolutely nothing I would change about my experience at T Carolyn Fashions, the location was easy to find, the service was second to none and my dress was simply perfect!! I'm from Whistler in Canada and found myself on vacation in Houston and while in town I couldn't miss an opportunity to visit the store. I wasn't disappointed - the team are amazing, so helpful and certainly know what best suits your body frame - I had specific ideas of what I wanted but very quickly realized the dress type wasn't for me! I wish I could remember the lovely lady who helped me as I'd love to say a HUGE thank you as it was she who picked my dress!! The fit, the style and the colour were WOW and not forgetting the corset which made all the difference on the day!! Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou!!!! Barbara kept in touch with me throughout the ordering process and once the dress was delivered she ensured it had arrived in perfect condition!! Would I recommend the store - ABSOLUTELY!!!

Today was my first visit to T. Carolyn. I love the fact that I didn't need an appointment. When I arrived, I was met by Michelle who helped me find 2 perfect MOB dresses for the weddings of my two daughters. Michelle was knowledgeable, professional and personally attended to me the 3 hours I was there. The other professionals gave their expert opinions which were also very helpful. I highly recommend T. Carolyn and Michelle.

Barbaras book is hilarious and so true..As Terrie states we are there walking advertisements.They were not going to let me walk out in the wrong color.I will be forever grateful and cant wait to return for my mother of the groom dress.Warmest regards Lisa
